Caption: Oak trunk damaged by honey fungus. Scarlet oak tree (Quercus coccinea), showing damage to the base of the trunk by honey fungus (Armillaria mellea). The parasite can quickly spread from tree to tree by means of long rhizomorphs, bootlace-like cords that spread through the soil. The fungus is commonly seen as clumps of golden yellow mushrooms, which are edible when cooked.
